MoHR Purposed Amendments in Christian Marriage and Divorce Acts’


Marriage & Divorce Among Christians

An Intro to Shamim’s ‘MoHR Purposed Amendments in Christian Marriage and Divorce Acts’

Shamim Mahmood (Masih) addresses marriage and divorce reforms for Christians in the Pakistan legal code. The tenor of Shamim’s report is to bring Pakistan law into the 21st century with a focus on women’s rights pertaining to marriage and divorce.

 

I’m a bit old fashioned choosing to agree with the New Testament:

 

Matthew 5:31-32; 1 Corinthians 7: 10-16 (NKJV)

 

Marriage Is Sacred and Binding

 

31 “Furthermore it has been said, ‘Whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.’ 32 But I say to you that whoever divorces his wife for any reason except sexual immorality[a] causes her to commit adultery; and whoever marries a woman who is divorced commits adultery.

 

Footnotes:

 

a Matthew 5:32Or fornication

 

Matthew 5:32Or fornication

 

Keep Your Marriage Vows

 

10 Now to the married I command, yet not I but the Lord: A wife is not to depart from her husband. 11 But even if she does depart, let her remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband. And a husband is not to divorce his wife.

 

12 But to the rest I, not the Lord, say: If any brother has a wife who does not believe, and she is willing to live with him, let him not divorce her. 13 And a woman who has a husband who does not believe, if he is willing to live with her, let her not divorce him. 14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband; otherwise your children would be unclean, but now they are holy. 15 But if the unbeliever departs, let him depart; a brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases. But God has called us to peace. 16 For how do you know, O wife, whether you will save your husband? Or how do you know, O husband, whether you will save your wife?

 

In full disclosure, I have been divorced. My first wife divorced me because my Christian beliefs did not coincide with the lifestyle she desired to live. I remarried in 1990 and have had a long happy Marriage to this very day (minus a few marital spats along the way).

 

Now addressing the issue of domestic wife and child abuse/battery. I definitely do advocate a married remain together when one inflicts violence upon another, even though the New Testament does not provide for consequences for such marital abuse for either the husband or the wife.

 

However, the New Testament has commands for the way a married life is to be conducted:

 

1 Corinthians 7: 2-5 (NKJV)

 

Nevertheless, because of sexual immorality, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband. Let the husband render to his wife the affection due her, and likewise also the wife to her husband. The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. And likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. Do not deprive one another except with consent for a time, that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again so that Satan does not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.

 

All you husbands need to read the above verses to make sure there is no misunderstanding about how to treat one’s wife in these next verses:

 

Ephesians 5:22-29 – ff (NKJV)

 

22 Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body. 24 Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything.

 

25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, 26 that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, 27 that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish. 28 So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself. 29 For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church.

 

There is no room for wife beaters among Christians. Adultery and unbelievers appears to be the principles behind divorce. BUT, if you are a man of God DO NOT allow a man to beat on his wife even if you must take matters in your own hands. Even if taking action means you at the very least call upon the rule of law to take care of a wife beater.

 

Ok, I know … this is an American perspective. I can only imagine how women are treated in a Muslim dominated nation like Pakistan. Christians definitely need the law to be on their side in greater context in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. Below, Shamim address marriage and divorce in Pakistan.

MoHR Purposed Amendments in Christian Marriage and Divorce Acts

 

By Shamim Mahmood

Sent 4/7/2017 10:46 PM

ISLAMABAD: Christian leadership agreed to bring reforms in the Marriage and Divorce acts to protect women rights. The clergy, parliamentarians and civil society have agreed to bring amendments to Christian Marriages Act 1872 and the Divorce Acts of 1869 of the constitutions of Pakistan.

 

A national level consultation of religious leaders, civil society and Christian parliamentarians was held to discuss Christian Marriage and divorce Acts. Senator Kamran Michael, Federal Minster for Human Rights stated that the Government is aware of the need for greater protection and promotion of minority rights whether it is legislation, education, health, nutrition or violence against them. He informed that Christian Family matters among the Christian community are dealt with by the Christian Marriages Act of 1872 and the Divorce Act of 1869. Since both the Acts are centuries old and need to be reviewed as certain provisions became outdated; they smack of colonial rule. Talking to the UCANews Senator Kamran Michael said the incumbent government is committed to protect the rights of every citizens of Pakistan especially women, children and minorities [Similar Thought Pakistan Point]. He said to facilitate the Christian community across the country, Ministry of Human Rights (MoHR) [MoHR update from Pakistan Today 3/19/17] has obtained Resolutions from Provincial Governments of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Baluchistan to regulate matter pertaining to Christian Marriage and divorce. He also referred first national consultation held in August 2016 wherein the same bills were thoroughly examined.

 

Mr. Sharafat Ali Chaudhry, Legal consultant, MoHR presented the Bill and stated that in these drafts, it has been proposed that the registration of marriage will be responsibility of the State and solemnization will be done by the Church. Age of marriage both for male and female has been proposed to be 18 years, and both male and female must be from Christian background, he further informed. Under the present applicable law of Christian Divorce Act 1869, there is only one ground of divorce available which is raising allegations against the chastity of the spouse, however, in the proposed draft, other grounds of the divorce have been proposed for the parties.

 

A Legal Consultant pointed out difference of opinion among different Christian religious communities. A detail discussion was held and it was proposed that more consultations are needed to have a unified legislation. It was also proposed that Representatives of National Database & Registration Authority (NADRA) may also be invited during next consultations as registration of marriages is responsibility of NADRA and Christian community is facing problem in getting marriage certificates.

 

A detailed discussion was also held to discuss amendments in divorce. It was informed that there has been a bill in the national assembly related to health issues wherein amendment has also been proposed in the Christian Bills. Legal consultant elaborated ground for divorce and raised the issue that mental and physical illness as well as cruelty shall be included in the grounds for divorce. Numbers of ground were proposed by the participants in view of current changed social, economic and cultural situations.

 

Senator Kamran Michael stated that the law is for Christian community and all denomination shall unanimously approve it. He was of the view that there shall not be amendments which are in contradiction to the Bible, however, clergy may like to consider different options and grounds for divorce. He further purposed another consultation meeting in Islamabad next month wherein the amendment proposed during current meeting will be discussed.

 

All denominational heads from Roman Catholic, Church of Pakistan, Presbyterian, and Salvation Army, members from the civil society and Christian parliamentarians were part of the meeting and agreed to the purposed amendments.

 

Be Blessed,

 

Shamim Mahmood

Tabloid Smoke Means There is Fire – SOMEWHERE!

Okay, here’s some tabloid stuff on Slick Willie (aka Bill Clinton). Honestly, it is my opinion most of this stuff is conjecture based on the few cases in which Slick had to pay hush money legally or under the table because he couldn’t keep his business in his trousers.

 

Regardless of the truth or speculation or the unfilled blanks between the two, Slick’s skirt chasing of willing and unwilling participants is a moral blight that Crooked Hillary has spent most of her married life maliciously defaming female victims and female willing adulteresses.

 

Crooked Hillary has been Slick’s huge enabler rather than Slick’s betrayed by adultery wife. This makes her as much as a moral reprobate as her husband former President William J. Clinton. Deluded Dem voters look the other way out of Party loyalty. Looking the other way is SHAMEFUL!

 

Donald Trump probably is the perfect alternative to Crooked Hillary, but his business success (yes, including recovery from bankruptcy) and his tapping into the pulse of unhappy with status quo Americans deserves a higher opportunity than the nefarious past of the Clinton husband/wife duo elitist criminality protection.

 

Criminals don’t have constituents they have victims. Political criminals only care about their agenda and NOT the rule of law.

HILLARY’S LOYALTY

wonder-about-hillarys-loyalty-crying-like-victim

 

The big question remains.  Despite all these public and private displays of infidelity from Bill, why does Hillary still remain in the marriage.

 

The answer is evident in Hillary’s Presidential aspirations.  Hillary has always had the desire to reach the highest office in the land – The White House.  It is a mere political partnership at this point as Bill, a popular former two-term president, has a huge sway in public opinion polls to help Hillary achieve this goal.

 

Please let us know what you think of Hillary’s persistence in maintaining the marriage in the comments below.

CII Curtail Women’s Rights


No Women's Right Pakistan

Intro to ‘CII Curtail Women’s Rights

Originalist Primer on American Religious Liberty

 

Edited by John R. Houk

May 31, 2016

 

 

This is the first time I have read Shamim Mahmood (Masih) write an op-ed article which openly is critical of Islam. I admire his courage but he has just embarked on a dangerous path in Pakistan where the Blasphemy Law is used as a tool to persecute Christians and other religious minorities with often fabricated accusations of insulting Islam and the pseudo-prophet Mohammed.

 

First Shamim addresses the legislative advice of the Council of Islamic Ideology which recommended essentially to chattelize women on all stratospheres of life which includes Muslims, Christians, Hindus and etc. Then pulls some essential understanding Quranic suras that tell Muslims how to treat Christians.

 

Then Shamim criticizes the CII as a contradiction of religious liberty found in America’s First Amendment:

 

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. (AMENDMENT IThe Heritage Guide to The Constitution)

 

I emphasized the clause of the First Amendment that addresses Religious Liberty. Shamim has read the interpretation of the First Amendment based on the Living Constitution Separation of Church and State. With the persecution that Christians suffer in Pakistan I can understand Shamim’s excitement about separating Church and State in totality. I am certain he doesn’t understand the repercussions of total separation.

 

I stand with the Originalist interpretation of the Constitution which can only be changed by a Constitutional Amendment. The Living Constitution crowd have allowed the Supreme Court of the United States to change constitutional meanings according to America’s Leftist interpretation of the way cultural mores have evolved and the way Christian memes have slowly been disallowed. America’s Left has been making huge strides in diminishing the influence of Christianity in the USA. This Christian diminishment has ended prayer in schools, ended prayers in public forums (e.g. City government or Public School sports events), removed icons of Western rule of Law such as removing the Ten Commandments from Courthouses, disallowing symbols of Christmas on taxpayer supported public property, disallowing Christmas parties or pageants forcing a name change to Winter festival or celebration, even High School Valedictorian speakers are forbidden to than Jesus for the Lord’s influence in their life and on and on! This has been the curse of the Living Constitution concept has brought upon America.

 

Originalist interpretation correctly does NOT Church and State BUT rather prevents the State to establish a State Religion or Church. Meaning religion (the Founding Fathers envisioned CHRISTIANITY) can influence the State BUT the State can make zero legislation forcing religion or people to worship the way the State wants you to worship. The only position the State has with religion is to protect people to worship as they please or to not worship at all if a person or people choose atheism. THIS IS ORIGINAL INTENT RELIGIOUS LIBERTY IN AMERICA.

 

American Originalists emphasize that NO WHERE in the Constitution or the First Amendment that the wording of “Separation of Church and State” exists. Rather the First Amendment Clauses No establishment of religion (aka Disestablishment Clause) and that religion can be freely exercised without Federal government interference.

 

From an American Conservative Christian perspective, I felt the necessity to explain the controversy in American Religious Liberty between Church/State Separatists and Disestablishment Church Originalists.

CII Curtail Women’s Rights

CII Allowed Men to Beat Women

 

By Shamim Mahmood

Sent: 5/29/2016 2:00 PM

 

Shamim Masih: Few days back, Islamic constitutional body, Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) [Wikipedia] has proposed its own women protection bill, recommending ‘a light beating’ for the wife if she defies the husband. This recommendations spark outrage though the CII chairman soften the tone stating ‘violence’ is not permissible in Islam. As he believes that light beating does not mean violence.

 

Earlier CII rejected Punjab’s controversial Protection of Women against Violence Act (PPWA) [“Women’s Protection Bill — A case of men’s insecurities”; Dawn; 5/12/16 01:35PM] terming it un-Islamic and drafted its own bill and will now forward to the Punjab Assembly. However, the parliament is not bound to consider its recommendations. The 20-members CII proposed that a husband should be allowed to ‘lightly’ beat his wife if she defies his commands and refuse to dress up as per his desires; turns down demand of intercourse without any religious excuse or does not take bath after intercourse or menstrual periods. The bill also suggested that beating is also permissible if a woman does not observe Hijab; interacts with strangers; speaks loud enough that she can easily be heard by strangers; and provides monetary support to people without taking consent of her spouse.

 

In a bill of 163-pages there are several bans on women, like a ban on co-education after primary educations, a ban on women from taking part in military combat, a ban on welcoming foreign delegations, interacting with males and making recreational visits with ‘Na-Mehram’ (not known [Possible meaning from Wikipedia]). Female nurses should not be allowed to take care of male patients and women should be banned from working in advertisements etc.…. The CII is a powerful body because of its influence on the political system in Pakistan. It advises the Pakistani legislature whether laws are in line with the teachings of Islam.

 

I don’t know for how long blasphemy laws allow me to speak about Islam or its teaching, but let me tell you; there is difference between women, children and minorities rights and Islamic permission. There are no equal rights for women and other minorities residing in a nation in which the Quran and Sharia Law define culture and society and its rule of law. Women’s rights given in Islam are the same as recommended by CII. Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan and Iran are clear examples and so much so Pakistan is another Sunni Dominated Islamic country inspired by Saudi Arabia.

 

A Muslim apologist usually says that Islam is religion of peace and provides the rights for women, children and for the people of the Book like Christians and Jews. The Council must have given Islamic references in support of these recommendations. And I am giving few quotes from Quran about how Islam deal with other minorities, which one of my U.S. friends quoted.

 

Quotes of Quran from “The Quran and Christianity” (6/23/16):

 

In the Quran, Christians are generally referred to as “people of the book” and then in the various suras and ayahs (or chapters and verses) a number of references are made. In 2:120, “Never will the Jews nor the Christians be pleased with you till you follow their religion. Say: ‘Verily, Islamic Guidance is the only Guidance. And if you were to follow their desires after what you have received of Knowledge, then you would have against Allah neither any protector nor helper.”

In 3:56: “As to those who disbelieve, I will punish them with a severe torment in this world and in the Hereafter, and they will have no helpers.” In 3:85: “And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers.” In 3:118: “O you who believe! Take not as your helpers or friends those outside your religion since they will not fail to do their best to corrupt you. They desire to harm you severely. Hatred has already appeared from their mouths, but what their breasts conceal is far worse. Indeed we have made plain to you the verses if you understand.”

3:178 states: “And let not the disbelievers think that our postponing of their punishment is good for them. We postpone the punishment only so that they may increase in sinfulness. And for them is a disgracing torment”. Hardly encouraging for the basis for a peaceful co-existence and a comfortable pluralism. Muslim love of the Quran that tells them to physically coerce non-Muslims through humiliation to convert or to kill them if they insult Islam or its prophet Mohammad is a dooms day promise toward Christians and other religious minorities in Pakistan.

 

CII recommendations could rightly be according to Islam but legislature is not bound to obey it. Religions are one’s own dealing with his creator but State deals with every individual’s matter and have to protect every citizen. Today, anyone can construct a mosque, synagogue or temple in the U.S. or any Christian majority country and can worship according to his faith but not in Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Afghanistan. Even if someone says that the constitution of Pakistan protects the rights of minorities but on the ground the situation is totally different, Jews cannot even proclaim their faith in Pakistan. And we are witness to the number of attacks on churches and temples and on minorities in the country.

 

Decades back, Christian majority countries have separated Church from the State matters. The First Amendment to the United States Constitution includes a clause that calls for the separation of church and state. Many people now espouse the belief that American government was designed to include “an impenetrable wall” separating church and state. The Reason would have been the same [for] the domination of religious leadership supervision over the state matters. One should learn a lesson from history, and may be tomorrow we will come up with the conclusion to do so, if we want to survive.

 

Be Blessed,

SLMP women empowerment

Visible and engaged – Christian women are breaking into industry

 

By Shamim Masih

Sent: 3/21/2014 7:14 AM

 

ISLAMABAD: Research shows women wait to be invited to participate in new opportunities. They think differently than men and this difference can be a powerful source of competitive advantage. By providing women with the necessary experiential entrepreneurial training to leverage women’s unique skills and perspectives for new business creation, we can transform them from employees to employers. Access to employment is a serious problem for Pakistani Christians. Well-educated, young Christian men and women are not able to find employment.

  

The good news is that there is definitely a push to get girls into the tech arena. When a woman earns an income, she reinvests 90 percent of it in her family, meaning her whole community benefits. With the resources to establish her own business, her children receive better nutrition and improved school access, while other women and their families benefit from the knowledge she shares.

 

Sharing Life Ministries Pakistan (SLMP) program on women empowerment was successfully piloted in the fall of 2011 and provides women with entrepreneurial skills. By providing new skills to the degreed individuals who are interested with necessary training for new business creation, they propose helping to create new technology based company that create the jobs of the future. Sohail Johnson chief of SLMP said that we recognized that not everyone can be an entrepreneur but a key component of the program is the creation of teams that are mentored by an experienced entrepreneur who will capitalize on the individual skill sets of each participant.

 

Under this skill enhancement program, SLMP had trained more than 980 minority women in recent three years. Kiran Younis, 23, having 8 family members earn some reasonable amount for her family. She had never been to school because her father has low income; since she got training a chance at SLMP, she planned to send her young ones to school for an education. Mehak Shuakat, 25, joined SLMP two years back and now is earning an average income of 5000 [Rupee] per month, supporting her parents.

 

Schooling in addition to a fiscal empowerment brings an adjustment to a completely new generation. We wish that social rights activists will start working upon these types of collections as a substitute to losing occasion [to work] in addition to [including] methods throughout other pursuits.

Doesn’t This Matter?


Islam is Death Cult

Justin Smith writes about historical revisionism that portray Islam as one of the world’s great benevolent religions and Christianity as a major contributor to all that is evil in the world. This historical revisionism Justin writes about is implemented into America’s textbooks as fact mysteriously leaving out Islam’s ravaging brutal history toward non-Muslims. One of the principle examples used is the brutal inequality Islam places the female gender.

Doesn’t This Matter?

 

By Justin O. Smith

Increasingly, it appears that many of our so-called “educators” do not have any qualms in aiding and abetting the Muslim Brotherhood’s 25 Year Plan and the American Muslim Advisory Council’s dawa/proselytizing efforts, as they approve indoctrination events and textbooks across the U.S. and here in Tennessee, that describe the process for converting to Islam and teach how to pray like Muslims. Islam is presented in false and glowing terms as “a religion of peace,” which only serves to advance the agenda of wealthy Saudi Arabian Wahhabis and other islamofascists; these “educators” affirm an undeserved stature of Islamic superiority, which traps Muslim children in a cycle of Sharia law/doctrine abuses perpetrated under a controlling tribal and unreformed freedom-killing ideology, and this also creates greater opportunities for the indoctrination of vulnerable groups of American children!

In early 2010, Minnesota’s ACLU sued St Paul’s public k-8 Tarek ibn Ziyad Academy for violating the ban against government religious advocacy; Massachusetts schools adopted a Notebook advocated by Harvard’s Middle Eastern Studies Center that claims Muslim explorers discovered the New World and Native Americans had Muslim names; and, in September of 2010, the Texas Board of Education drew heavy criticism after issuing a textbook resolution asking publishers to fix the “pro-Islamic/anti-Christian half-truths, selective disinformation, and false stereotypes” that riddled the textbooks, just as the case has been in Williamson, Rutherford and now Sumner Counties in Tennessee…for example, the brutal and violent conquests of Christian lands by Muslims is now referred to as “migrations” of “empire builders.”

Amanda Elmore has indoctrinated students at Hendersonville High School through her World Studies classes, over the past ten years, but one young lady, a freshman, finally said “enough.” Mike Conner’s stepdaughter was given a zero, when she refused to attend a field trip on September 4, 2013 to one of the most radical mosques in the nation, the Islamic Center of Nashville of Carlos Bledsoe infamy; next, she also refused to accept the alternative assignment to “compare and contrast” the teachings of Jesus, Gandhi and Mohammed.

Conner’s daughter refused the alternative assignment due to its heavy bias towards Islam. She had been given one page of Bible verses, two thirds of a page about Gandhi and five pages about Mohammed. After a threatened lawsuit, she was allowed to simply compare any three of the five major religions through any information she could research on her own, as it should be.

On September 11, 2013, Sheridan Middle School (Arkansas) Superintendent Brenda Haynes argued that inviting a Muslim guest speaker, on this day of tragic memories for most of us, was motivated by pure intentions. “There was no thought of having this person address the classes to point Islam as ‘a religion of peace’,” Haynes stated. If there was truly “no thought” of such a scenario arising, how interesting is it that she felt compelled to mention it?

And, what a feeling of shock and disgust must have coursed through parent’s minds upon hearing that Principle Peter Badalament read a Muslim prayer over Concord-Carlisle High School’s (Boston) intercom system, instead of reading the Pledge of Allegiance to the United States; the poem, by Syrian-American poet Mohja Kahf, is contemptuous of America and Americans in general.

Islam is the ideology of death. It demands to this day the deaths of anyone who leaves it, and it regularly demands the deaths of adulterers, homosexuals, infidels, Jews, Christians, and even other Muslims who practice a less strict form of Islam.

Many Americans become offended and indignant over any suggestion, even when presented with proof, that child marriage, honor killings and female excision are, right this very instant, a very real fact of life for many Muslim girls in homes all across America; if 95% of Egyptian girls are genitally mutilated, what percentage of Egyptian girls born in the U.S. are circumcised? None? I don’t think so.

When educators in the U.S., out of a misguided notion founded in diversity, multiculturalism and the desire not to stigmatize Muslims, do not present any information about Muslim women kept from working and being productive, given frequent beatings and forced into arranged marriages that are approved by their parents, communities and imams/preachers, they deny countless Muslim girls their right to be free from this backward culture; they fail to live up to the ideas and values of our democratic republic, and they dishonor the memory of those American women who fought so long and hard for equal rights!

Islam is built on sexual inequality and on surrender of individual responsibility and choice. This is not just ugly; it is monstrous.

Sure, these things do not happen to all American Muslims, since some Muslims have assimilated better than others; however, we still see thousands of radical Muslim students, young men and women born in the United States, such as Lema Sbenaty of Murfreesboro, TN – a Muslim Student Association (MSA)/Muslim Brotherhood supporter, Islamic sympathizers and liberal educators, who have so manifestly benefitted from every advantage of Western education, ignore the profound differences between a theocratic mind-set and a democratic mind-set.

Sbenaty tells her associates in the Muslim Interscholastic Tournament organization that “We are Muslims in non-Muslim countries. As such, it is the duty of each and every one of us to inform and educate others about Islam… emphasize that your MSA is for anyone interested in … clearing misconceptions about Islam. This may facilitate school approval.” And, this would give her and other adult Muslim women access to young high school students for the purpose of “educating”/indoctrinating them about Islam.

All of this has contributed to the national dynamic, which has created a sanitized version of Islamic history and dogma that has infiltrated U.S. public textbooks over the last two decades; a great amount of this occurred through the efforts of Muslim convert Susan Douglas, from the Institute on Religion and Civic Values, who wrote lesson plans, advisories, guidelines and pamphlets to soft the image of Islam in public schools for ten years. Central to her works is the ‘Teacher’s Guide to Religion in the Public Schools’, which was promoted as an interfaith ‘First Amendment’. 

Surely, we can flatly state, “Islam, based on the Quran, that denies women basic human rights is backward,” even if only as an opinion. And, since this is a valid criticism, ignoring the practice of victimization of women that stems from the Quran only adds harm to its victims: Free speech is the bedrock of liberty and a free society. And yes, it includes the right to blaspheme and offend.

Doesn’t this matter to all those clever young Muslim girls in America, such as Lema Sbenaty?

A lot of Americans, some well-intentioned and some not, have a hard time accepting that all human beings are equal, but all cultures and ideologies are not. A culture that values women as masters of their own lives is better than a culture that mutilates young girls and confines them behind walls or murders them for falling in love. A culture that protects women’s rights… where a woman can be appointed to the U.S Supreme Court… is better than a culture that denies a woman’s inheritance rights and dishonors her by questioning her truthfulness as a rule of law. The American culture guided by the Western Enlightenment and the U.S. Constitution is better than anything Islam can offer or has ever offered!

If today’s Progressive Leftist educators and publishers were truly objective, they would tell a story of a Quran that is the ‘Mein Kampf’ of Islam, which means to eliminate and supplant all other religions and ideologies with the mother of all totalitarianisms, theocracy; they would write of events like the mass murders of innocents, such as occurred recently in Kenya, Nigeria and the Sudan, simply because the victims could not name Mohammed’s mother and were not Muslim, and these educators would recount the historic genocides perpetrated by Muslims across Constantinople, Armenia and Anatolia; they would explain the inherent violence of an ideology that does not respect any human rights and preaches the Holy War, the Jihad: All the evil that these Sons of Mohammed commit against us and themselves comes from the Quran.

There is a problem with Islam. By ignoring the facts, you, the Muslim student or adult…the “educators”, fail your community. If the goal is to truly seek the truth, which education and textbooks are supposed to provide, then no one can deny that a strict interpretation of Islam is preparation for bigotry, widespread strife and oppression. You cannot deny the link to Islamic beliefs and the failure of Islamic societies to provide peace, opportunity and prosperity to their people. No matter which Islamic country you call you ancestral “home”, you are no longer living there for a reason, so embrace the better life your parents sought for you, by giving birth to you in America or by bringing you to America. And, if you believe there should be Sharia law in America, go home and take a look at what it’s really like!

Thoughts on Darwish Chain Email – ‘Joys of Muslim Women’


Nonie Darwish - I will not submit

John R. Houk

© May 6, 2013

 

I received a chain email from a respected friend. The chain email has been around for awhile and its most common title is “Joys of Muslim Women.” The words of the chain email are attributed to Nonie Darwish. Darwish has become an esteemed Counterjihad writer and speaker. The term Counterjihad means Darwish is scores big on the Muslim and Leftist hate-meter which in turn means Muslim Apologists and Leftist Multiculturalists spew hate towards her by ironically accusing her of Hate Speech.

 

Briefly Nonie Darwish was born a Muslim in Egypt that also resided in Gaza. Gaza can be nicknamed Hamastan due to the Muslim Brotherhood affiliated Islamic terrorist group Hamas ruling Gaza.

 

Unfortunately the chain email attribution to Nonie Darwish is a falsehood. However, Darwish agrees that much of the information in the chain email is accurate. Here are some quotes from some fact check websites (that I might illuminate are leaning toward the Left and are quick to display the Islamic Apologist view that utilizes Taqiyya [deception] to contradict Counterjihadists with abrogated verses from the Quran).

 

Watch Nonie Darwish in a passionate indictment against Islam’s Shariah Law in this video:

 

Nonie Darwish and “Islamic Apartheid” at Temple University

 

 

Fact Checkers on Chain Email:

 

About.com Urban Legends

 

Analysis: Despite the attribution at the top (“Joys of Muslim Women by Nonie Darwish”), this text was not written by Muslim-turned-Christian human rights activist Nonie Darwish; indeed, the bottom two-thirds of it repeatedly refer to her in the third person. Darwish confirmed via email that she did not write the article, though it is, in her words, “to a large extent accurate.” She further stated that her 2009 book, Cruel and Usual Punishment, better represents her views.

 

It should be noted that while the email is at least partially based on Darwish’s personal experiences growing up in a Muslim country and reading the Qur’an, her claim that it’s to a large extent accurate also means that, even in her opinion, it’s not entirely accurate. To say the least, the text is hyperbolic, awash in generalizations, and makes extreme claims about Islam and Islamic practices that do not pertain to all Muslims.

Fact Check: Nonie Darwish and Enough Muslims to Elect a President in 20 years – Irregular Times

 

Posted by Jim Cook

January 23rd, 2011

 

In this morning’s e-mail, Irregular Times received the following message:

 

Joys of Muslim Women by Nonie Darwish…

 

In twenty years there will be enough Muslim voters in the U.S. and Canada to elect the President or Prime Minister by themselves! Rest assured they will do so… You can look at how they have taken over several towns in the USA and Canada, Dearborn Mich. is one, Brampton, Ontario is another and there are others…

 

I think everyone in the U.S. and Canada should be required to read this, but with the ACLU, there is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it on!

 

Claim: Nonie Darwish wrote this article, “The Joys of Muslim Women,” or any other piece of writing so titled.

Fact: Nonie Darwish has specifically denied this. The association of Nonie Darwish with this text is a hoax.

 

Claim: The ACLU is preventing the wide dissemination of the assertion I received by e-mail.

Fact: There is not any record of the ACLU agitating to restrict the dissemination of this text. It would not make sense for the ACLU to agitate to restrict dissemination of this text, since the ACLU is a major proponent of free speech, including freedom of speech for unpopular ideas across the political spectrum. As an empirical matter, a google search for the text “In twenty years there will be enough Muslim voters in the U.S. to elect the President by themselves” turns up 17,900 results, indicating a rather wide dissemination. It is nearly impossible to prove that a conspiracy does not exist, so I leave it to you to decide between the two possibilities: Either the ACLU is carrying on a stealthy, invisible and utterly ineffectual campaign to quash the story we received by e-mail this morning, or the ACLU is not trying to quash it at all.

 

Claim: “In twenty years there will be enough Muslim voters in the U.S. and Canada to elect the President or Prime Minister by themselves!”

Fact: This is a claim we looked at last September after someone used it as a justification of bans on mosque building:

 

As a mother and a grandmother, I worry. I learned that in 20 years with the rate of the birth population, we will be overtaken by Islam, and their goal is to get people in Congress and the Supreme Court to see that Shariah is implemented. My children and grandchildren will have to live under that.

 

The truth is that, according to the two most recent studies of religious populations in America, (the American Religious Identification Survey and the U.S. Religious Landscape Survey), Muslims make up only 0.6% of the adult population of the United States. That’s approximately 1.8 million out of about 300 million Americans.

 

Here’s a graph showing what we can expect the Muslim population of the United States to look like over the next twenty years if the American Muslim population follows the U.S. birth rate, the World birth rate, or the Saudi birth rate (three reasonable expectations):

 

clip_image003

 

The total U.S. population during the period will be somewhere in the range of 300-350 million. Clearly, unless a comet blasts into North America and Muslims put up their secret comet-debris-shields, there is no reasonable scenario under which the American Muslim population will come anywhere close to making up a majority in the next twenty years.

 

Conclusion: This article is once, twice, three times disconnected from reality.

 

If you want to read the chain email then you need to stick with me. I am posting it as I received it from my friend. Nonetheless, there are some allegations within the email that are simply meant to stir up an anti-Muslim sentiment among readers. The thing is exaggerated and false statistical stands do not need to be made. A careful examination of the Quran with an understanding of Islam’s dualistic theology; that the newest commands from Mohammed (or Allah depending on your perception) outweigh previous commands – the principle is Abrogation; know that although the Quran (See also Chronological Order) is considered the uncreated word of Allah by Muslims BUT the Hadith and Sira weigh in heavily in interpreting the Quran and realize that some Hadith are considered more accurate than others then become cognizant which of those Hadith are the most accepted. Muslim Apologists either knowingly lies by telling an abrogated verse (or surah) is the foundation of Islam. A Muslim theologian can lie with a straight face because Islam’s dualistic principles actually can make two opposites true if it serves the purpose of the moment. In Western thought theology is more singular in that the theological thought is either right or wrong and NOT both right dependent on circumstances.

 

As a reminder Nonie Darwish has said the chain email “Joys of Muslim Women” was not written by her but that the essence of its message is true. Now some of the claims in it are ridiculous yet the anti-woman aspect of the email is valid.

 

So without further adieu here is the text of that chain email sent to me by a friend.

20 years from now? Frightening!!!!

Sent to me: 5/5/2013 6:41 PM

 

I am guilty of thinking that each religion had one main prophet and a “golden rule”.  I am wrong.  The Muslim religion is spreading like the plague and it carries the same gruesome results if we do not stop it now.

 

20 years from now, I will be in Heaven – bye!!!

 

This was written by a woman born in Egypt as a Muslim. Make sure you read the paragraph (in red) towards the end.

 

Joys of Muslim Women
By Nonie Darwish

 

In the Muslim faith a Muslim man can marry a child as young as 1 year old and have sexual intimacy with this child. And then consummate the marriage by 9.

The dowry is given to the family in exchange for the woman (who becomes his slave) and for the purchase of the private parts of the woman, to use her as a toy.


Even though a woman is abused she cannot obtain a divorce.

To prove rape, the woman must have (4) male witnesses.

Often after a woman has been raped, she is returned to her family and the family must return the dowry. The family has the right to execute her (an honor killing) to restore the honor of the family. Husbands can beat their wives ‘at will’ and he does not have to say why he has beaten her.


The husband is permitted to have (4 wives) and a temporary wife for an hour (prostitute) at his discretion.


The Shariah Muslim law controls the private as well as the public life of the woman.

 

In the West World (America and Britain) Muslim men are starting to demand Shariah Law so the wife cannot obtain a divorce and he can have full and complete control of her. It is amazing and alarming how many of our sisters and daughters attending American Universities and British Universities are now marrying Muslim men and submitting themselves and their children unsuspectingly to the Shariah law.


By passing this on, enlightened American and British women may avoid becoming a slave under Shariah Law.

Ripping the West in Two.

Author and lecturer Nonie Darwish says the goal of radical Islamists is to impose Shariah law on the world, ripping Western law and liberty in two.


She recently authored the book, Cruel and Usual Punishment: The Terrifying Global Implications of Islamic Law. Darwish was born in Cairo and spent her childhood in Egypt and Gaza before immigrating to America in 1978, when she was eight years old. Her father died while leading covert attacks on Israel. He was a high-ranking Egyptian military officer stationed with his family in Gaza…


When he died, he was considered a “shahid,” a martyr for jihad. His posthumous status earned Nonie and her family an elevated position in Muslim society.


But Darwish developed a skeptical eye at an early age. She questioned her own Muslim culture and upbringing… She converted to Christianity after hearing a Christian preacher on television.


In her latest book, Darwish warns about creeping shariah law – what it is, what it means, and how it is manifested in Islamic countries.


For the West, she says radical Islamists are working to impose sharia on the world. If that happens, Western civilization will be destroyed. Westerners generally assume all religions encourage a respect for the dignity of each individual. Islamic law (Sharia) teaches that non-Muslims should be subjugated or killed in this world.


Peace and prosperity for one’s children is not as important as assuring that Islamic law rules everywhere in the Middle East and eventually in the world.


While Westerners tend to think that all religions encourage some form of the golden rule, Shariah teaches two systems of ethics – one for Muslims and another for non-Muslims. Building on tribal practices of the seventh century, Shariah encourages the side of humanity that wants to take from and subjugate others.


While Westerners tend to think in terms of religious people developing a personal understanding of and relationship with God, Shariah advocates executing people who ask difficult questions that could be interpreted as criticism.


It’s hard to imagine, that in this day and age, Islamic scholars agree that those who criticize Islam or choose to stop being Muslim should be executed. Sadly, while talk of an Islamic reformation is common and even assumed by many in the West, such murmurings in the Middle East that is silenced through intimidation.


While Westerners are accustomed to an increase in religious tolerance over time, Darwish explains how petro dollars are being used to grow an extremely intolerant form of political Islam in her native Egypt and elsewhere.


(In twenty years there will be enough Muslim voters in the U.S. and Britain to elect the President and Prime Minister by themselves! Rest assured they will do so… You can look at how they have taken over several towns in the US… Dearborn Mich. is one…and there are others… Britain has several cities now totally controlled by Muslims.)


I think everyone in the U.S. And Great Britain should be required to read this, but with the ACLU, there is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it on!


It is too bad that so many are disillusioned with life and Christianity to accept Muslims as peaceful. Some may be but they have an army that is willing to shed blood in the name of Islam. The peaceful support the warriors with their finances and own kind of patriotism to their religion. While America and Britain are getting rid of Christianity from all public sites and erasing God from the lives of children, the Muslims are planning a great jihad on America and Britain.


This is your chance to make a difference! Pass it on to your email list or at least those you think will listen.


Some of those I’m sending it to WILL NOT! Put your head back under the covers so you can’t see the boogie man!

Crazy Sharia Exacted on Bibi Aisha


Bibi Aisha

John R. Houk

© November 21, 2010

 

Below is a Tony Newbill email that diverges from his usual “End the Fed” Conspiracy Theory emails. It differs because the theme of the email is about something I have become somewhat a crusader about; i.e. Exposing the violent nature of Islam and that theopolitical ideology’s total incompatibility with the U.S. Constitution guaranteed rights for individuals. A good reference to previous posts that might offer some background understanding could be these two titles as examples:

 

·       Oklahoma Sued for Anti-Sharia Law

 

·       Pakistan Christians Persecuted by Islam

 

Tony’s email is from a National Geographic photo shoot of Afghan women involved in the Islamic culture of Afghanistan. Newbill provides the link at the end of his very righteous indignation. To get to the picture of the subject of Newbill’s ire you have to go through about four or five clicks of the National Geographic photo display.

 

Then after the Newbill email I have a piece from AllVoices.com talking about this same subject. Now honestly the AllVoices.com post was obviously written by someone translating into English or a foreign person with broken knowledge of English grammar. For example the writer uses male pronouns like “he” and “his” when the meaning is obviously “she” and “her”. I will place the link to the AllVoices.com post if you wish to read the original; however I am going to utilize some literary liberal (not Leftist) editorial license to allow better readability.

THIS Is why American People MUST NEVER EVER Allow the Circumvention of the US Constitution’s 1st Amendment to Speak Freely about the Need for a FREE COUNTRY LIKE THE USA to BE a Safe Haven against these Crimes Against Humanity!!!!!!!!!

 

Scarred for Life: Hey America do You Want Sharia Law in your COURTS?????????????? Here’s what you will get to see and have happen to your family members!!!!!

 

Bibi Aisha was 19 when I met her in Kabul’s Women for Afghan Women shelter in November 2009. Her husband beat her from the day she was married, at age 12. When he beat her so badly she thought she might die. She escaped to seek a neighbor’s help. To punish her for leaving without permission, her husband, who is a Taliban fighter, took her to a remote spot in the mountains. Several men held her while he cut off her nose, ears and hair. She screamed—to no avail. “If I had the power, I would kill them all,” she told me. I wanted to be strong for Aisha to give her hope she would be fine again. But when she described that moment, I began to cry. Aisha arrived in the U.S. in August for extensive reconstructive surgery.

Last August she turned his face to the world by the hand of Time magazine. Aisha Bibi is a 19 year old girl whose husband cut off her nose and ears for having run away from home, where she was a slave. Now, Bibi is presented to the public in Los Angeles wearing a very natural appearance, as she received a prosthetics and a prior reconstructive treatment step by the Grossman Burn Foundation paid in California.

 

Aisha Bibi’s story is relatively common in Afghanistan. Her father gave her and her baby sister to pay a blood debt because the uncle of the (two) girls had killed a man. Bibi was delivered in Uruzgan to the family of her new husband who was a Taliban fighter. In the house of the Taliban husband’s in-laws were the two girls. (The two) girls were the slaves of the in-laws receiving blow and insults. The girls were made to sleep in the barn. Desperate to what was happening, Bibi decided to flee south to Kandahar with the help of two neighbors who really wanted to sell (her). A police patrol discovered them and eventually spent five months in jail until her husband got her. In Afghanistan Taliban courts she was sentenced to punishment from her husband. The husband cut off her nose and ears in the desert where he left to her fate. No one knows exactly how Bibi got out of this bind. Some say she crawled to the house of her grandfather [or perhaps] others found her almost by accident that were American volunteers from an NGO. The truth is that she was sent to the shelter for Afghan Woman Woman (WAW) [SlantRight Editor: I am guessing the organization is listed incorrectly] where she spent ten months. Slowly and with the help of a psychologist Aisha spoke again and sometimes even smiling. She received news of being sent and to be operated [on] in Los Angeles by a foundation to cover expenses. Now I have to wait for definitive surgery and especially get free my sister who has been ten years at the home of the husband’s family. Aisha’s sister is probably still paying for what her uncle has done.

 

SlantRight.com Editor: I discovered there are related posts at the bottom of this article by Karasiwo. I don’t know how long this article will be up so below is the first of the related posts articles.

 

Afghan girl gets a prosthetic nose

 Bibi Aisha Before-After surgery

By FauziaSultana

Oct. 16, 2010

AllVoices.com

 

Bibi Aisha, the disfigured Afghan woman who had her nose and ears cut off and was featured on the cover of Time magazine, has received temporary prosthetics.

 

Aisha was treated at Los Angeles’ Grossman Burn Foundation, where the 19 year-old was fitted with a prosthetic nose, something she can use in public until her multiple reconstructive surgeries are completed.

 

Aisha’s husband, a Taliban member, and his family, cut off her nose and ears when she tried to escape being abused in her home. She was then left for dead, barely surviving the ordeal.

 

Aisha made her way to a medical center run by the U.S. military, who eventually transferred her to a privately-run women’s shelter. She was then sent to the Grossman Burn Center for a series of surgeries that were offered on a pro bono basis.

 

Aisha was recently presented with an award by the First Lady of California, Maria Shriver and met with Former First Lady of the United States Laura Bush, who is an active member of the U.S.-Afghan Women’s Council.
